ENTRANCE FLOORING SYSTEMS - RIGID AND TEXTILE

1.0.2 1.0.1 Research shows that up to 94% of the dirt entering a building is brought in on the soles of shoes and the tyres of wheeled traffic. This wet and dry soiling makes interiors look dirty and unattractive, causes structural damage to interior floor coverings and finishes and creates unnecessary health and safety hazards. If effective measures are not taken to avoid this problem, the repair and maintenance costs of a typical floor covering over its lifespan could be nine times the cost of the original investment. A well designed entrance flooring system will prevent dirt and moisture from being tracked in and thereby prolong the life of interior flooring and reduce cleaning, repair and overall maintenance costs.

ENTRANCE FLOORING SYSTEMS SAVE MONEY ... 86% of the total cost of commercial floor coverings is maintenance Maintenance cost of buildings Sanitary 25% Flooring 60% Interior 15% Cost of floor coverings Purchase Repairs Maintenance Introduction to Forbo Entrance Flooring Systems | 1 Equality Act 2010 British Standard 8300: 2009+A1:2010 Design of Buildings and their approaches to meet the needs of disabled people – Code of practice ”…The ingress of soil and surface moisture to buildings, or their transfer between adjacent internal areas, should be reduced to the lowest practical level, e.g. through the use of appropriate entrance matting systems conforming to British Standard 7953…” Loose lay mats and coir are advised against.

The role of an entrance flooring system British Standard 7953 Part 5.1 “The entrance flooring system should scrape, wipe and retain soil, making contact with both feet of people entering the building and, in the case of wheeled traffic, with the circumference of the wheels.” British Standard 7953: 1999 states that an EFS is necessary in order to: • Reduce the risk of slip injuries • Prolong the life of the interior floor finish • Reduce the cost of ongoing maintenance ... AND PROTECT PEOPLE AND INTERIORS Wet and dry soiling can both create slip hazards but by taking sensible decisions over flooring surfaces and installing effective entrance matting, the potential for slipping can be dramatically reduced.

There are two major pieces of legislation/guidance documents that affect the specification of EFS’s. British Standard 7953: 1999 Part 3.1 Guidance document • Definition of an EFS • The role of an EFS • Product types British Standard 8300: 2009+A1:2010 Making entrances safe and accessible for all.

The British Standard states why we need an entrance system and also what its role is. Health and Safety and the Equality Act legislation imposes a duty of care on those who own and manage public buildings to prevent interior floor surfaces from becoming hazardous. Entrance flooring systems also have a critical safety role to play. Slips, trips and falls made up more than half of all reported injuries in 2012/13 (source: RIDDOR) causing suffering and financial loss for individuals, companies and society at large. The safety needs of the elderly, the infirm and those with impairments must be given a high priority.

Floors must be kept clean, dry and safe and offer an appropriate co-efficient of friction (slip-resistance) for pedestrians and good wheel grip for wheel chair users.

1.0.4 1.0.3 WHICH ENTRANCE FLOORING SYSTEM SHOULD I CHOOSE? If you really want to keep your building clean and safe. It’s not enough to throw down a mat at the door. In fact the Health and Safety Executive advises against the use of loose lay mats which they state ‘can introduce a range of hazards and are not always very effective’. Source: HSE elearning module, ‘Watch your step’ APPLICATION 1 APPLICATION 2 APPLICATION 3 OUTSIDE USE Any matting placed outside the building entrance is the first line of defence against foot-borne soil, scraping the coarsest dirt from the soles of shoes before they cross the threshold.

INSIDE USE Moving inside, the next line of defence, is used to remove foot-borne moisture and finer dirt particles. OTHER CIRCULATION AREAS Other areas in the building also suffer from soil and moisture; reception areas, corridors, walkways to other parts of the building, elevators, staircase exits, etc. All these areas will be prone to residual soiling and will benefit highly from a purposely designed Coral entrance mat to absorb this soiling. 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 Creating an effective entrance flooring system involves thinking about footfall – the number of people walking in and out in a given period – and walking routes (the directions they take once inside) and applying that information in the design of the entrance area.

So although these mats may have a higher initial cost than a single sided solution, their durability is legendary and they come with a guarantee of up to 15 years* providing peace of mind. The reversible feature also makes Tuftiguard the more sustainable option as the use of the existing mat is extended rather than replaced.

2.0.2 2.0.1 • High tensile steel linkages give Nuway Tuftiguard construction integrity • Tuftiguard mats can sit in a matwell or can be used with ramp systems • For multi-directional entrances, Nuway Tuftiguard is available in 50cm tile format • Tuftiguard is available in open or closed construction to suit the location of the mat and preferred cleaning regime • Tuftiguard is available with single wiper strips or double wiper strips where extra moisture absorption is required or where the entrance is less than 3 metres deep At the heart of the Nuway range, Tuftiguard Classic is the most widely used rigid engineered entrance mat in the UK.

Tuftiguard has the durability, strength and structural integrity to deliver excellent performance and appearance retention in intense traffic locations. LINKAGES BLACK ANODISED SCRAPER BARS ANODISED ALUMINIUM SCRAPER BARS WIPER STRIPS WIPER STRIPS • Tuftiguard is available in a choice of depths to match most matwells. Ramp frames are also available • Scraper bars, as the name suggests, scrape soil from the traffic crossing the entrance system • Wiper strips remove moisture and finer dirt • In our Black anodised aluminium mats, the black anodised finish is removed from the tip of the scraper bars to ensure a consistent appearance across the mat.

CONSIDERATIONS As with all aluminium matting systems of this type, in very brightly lit areas, the strong contrast between a light aluminium scraper bar and a dark wiper strip can sometimes create a strobe effect which should be prevented. To avoid disorientating pedestrians affected by this type of visual disturbance, consider using Bamboo or Black anodised scraper bars or a less contrasting wiper strip.

3.0.8 3.0.7 Nuway Grid offers a contemporary and cost effective alternative to Nuway Tuftiguard entrance matting and is an ideal solution in very heavy traffic entrance areas where aesthetic considerations are paramount. • Coral carrier sections can allow colour co-ordinated entrance areas to be created with primary and secondary entrance matting products. • Inserts include strips of textile inserts (for internal use only) in 13 different colourways drawn from the Coral classic, brush pure and burford ranges. CONSIDERATIONS As with all aluminium matting systems of this type, in very brightly lit areas, the strong contrast between a light aluminium carrier and a dark insert can sometimes create a strobe effect which should be prevented.

To avoid disorientating pedestrians affected by this type of visual disturbance, consider using a less contrasting insert. If you are considering using rubber infills for an exterior mat in an exposed entrance, please consider using Ultragrip rubber or contact our Entrance Flooring Systems Customer Service team on 01773 740 688 to ensure compatibility. • Other textile inserts from the Coral range are available to special order.

• Grid Ultragrip provides a slip resistant surface, ideal for entrances with multi directional traffic. • Ultragrip rubber inserts have been tested using the Pendulum (the HSE recommended test method) in accordance with BS7976-2 and the UK Slip Resistance Group Guidelines and offer a low slip risk in wet and dry conditions. • Grid Ultragrip offers improved underfoot comfort and moisture removal due to its ‘pocket’design. It also offers excellent fire rating properties. • Ultragrip rubber and standard rubber inserts are also available, which allow Nuway grid mats to be used in external entrances.

• Available in a choice of 12 and 17mm depths to suit the majority of matwells • Unique dovetail construction allows for easy shaping on site.

For more complex and unusually designed entrance areas, Forbo can provide help with matwell measuring and templating. Please contact your Forbo Business Area Manager to find out more.

Matwell subfloors must be of sound construction, dry, smooth and level, clean and free from contamination. For internal mat installations the screed should be flat and level to accommodate the depth of the chosen mat. For external mat installations the screed should again be flat and level to the depth of the frame, and consideration must be given to drainage.
